    Congratulations to Renato Nahas Batista, SWS, for passing the Spanish Wine Scholar exam with highest honors!

    About Renato:

    Above all I am a wine enthusiast. But recently I became a Wine Educator at Brazilian Association of Sommeliers-SP.  After 25 years playing different roles on a multi billion dollar Beverage Company in Brazil, Europe and US, on Commercial, Finance, Distribution and IT, I decided to dedicate my time to my real passion: wine education.

    In order to get prepared for this new challenge, I got the Sommelier Certification at Brazilian Association of Sommelier (affiliated to ASI) where I became a Wine Educator. After this I’ve been looking for international certifications in order to perform with excellence my new role.

    Since then, I got the Bourgogne Master Level, FWE and IWS at Wine Scholar Guild, where I am also enrolled to Bordeaux Master Level. In addition, I also got the WSET 3 and the CSW (Society Wine Educators). After we get rid of Covid-19, I have plans to enroll to DipWset.

    I have always had a passion for Spanish wine and through the SWS my passion increased even more.  The diversity of learning tools, book, maps, recorded-live instruction, online chapter reviews, quizzes enabled me to deepen and broaden my passion about Spanish culture and wines.  Looking forward as a wine educator, I feel fully equipped, with the necessary knowledge and a deep understanding of Spanish wine.
